Vermonia

Have you ever read manga? If you haven’t, you should--it is a style of writing from Japan. It is like a graphic novel, but you read it backwards. It might seem strange, but you can really get into it.

Recently I started reading Vermonia, a book about four kids who travel to Vermonia, a different universe. The kids are Naomi, Mel, Doug, and Jim. The four kids receive a gift, a creature from Vermonia who has unknown magical powers.


The plot is pretty generic, but it's a good story. I would not recommend it for kids age 9 or younger because it is extremely difficult to read (look up "how to read manga" on the right hand side of the Vermonia website; it is very important or else you will not understand it). The drawing in these comics is superb, and I think that the costumes are creative. This is a good book for a rainy day; I give it 3 out of 5 chocolate bars.



rating:3 out of 5 chocolate bars
appropriateness: faerie princess

  4. Hmm, this sounds like an interesting book. Can you tell me a little bit more about the characters? What are their personalities like? Why are they in this world? What is this gift they got? What is Vermonia like? Why did they get Vermonia? What does Vermonia do to that makes the reader think he/she/it has magical powers?

    Side note...you get to rate books using chocolate bars? This is my kind of blog!!!
